Hey, I just got a new laptop for school and thought I would try Quake 2 again. Trouble is I am getting a ton of fps lag regardless of what my video settings are. Explosions, players moving on the screen. R1Q2 works great but could anyone please give me some tips on how I can reduce my fps lag? I have over 2 ghz of cpu and 3-4 gigs of ram although my graphics come from an integrated graphics chip and I dunno if that is the problem. Also, I am running Windows 7 32-bit. This game is 10-15 years old. Surely my graphics card can keep up?

It doesnt support the features q2 demands. Newer onboard graphs are build on HD movies and such. Older games don't apply.

1 exsample: shadow rendering.

and so on.

yes, you've been scammed as many by this 'brand'

The best tip for onboard graphics is to use gl_dynamic 0, this prevents dynamic lighting which is very slow with integrated graphics due to no VRAM. Other than that, try a client like Q2PRO which has an optimized renderer, the default renderer doesn't take advantage of a lot of features modern cards provide.

I use a asus netbook w/a 1.6G atom cpu. 2G Mem winXP  no problems
You might wanta look at the background process. Q2 only needs a 133Mhz P1 to run
